South of the Rio Grande they're called La Migra, the U.S. Border Patrol agents who intercept illegal immigrants heading for the States.
Europe will soon have its own La Migra only it's an outfit we already know as NATO. Naval vessels will patrol to stop smugglers moving migrants from Turkey to Greece. Other NATO units will step up surveillance of the Syrian-Turkish border.
NATO secretary general Jens Stoltenberg insisted "this is not about stopping or pushing back refugee boats." Yeah, right, Jens.
Guess whose ships have been ordered to start refugee boat patrols? You got it, Canada. We'll be joining vessels from Germany, Greece and Turkey in the Aegean. Odd that, isn't it? One of those countries is not like the others.
